Is there such a thing as baring your breasts for a good cause? Vix, a buxom British blonde who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, has decided to go topless to promote MS awareness on the internet!

In addition to some rather revealing photos, the VixPix website (www.vixpix.org) tells the story of her diagnosis, provides links to on-line MS resources and solicits donations on behalf of the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre (www.msrc.co.uk), an organization dedicated to providing support services, information and a lively on-line community for MS sufferers and carers.

Lawrence Wood, Chief Executive of the MSRC said, "Anyone who reads the very moving comments on VixPix will understand why this has been far more than just a fundraising exercise. She has not only raised what to us is a very substantial sum of much needed money, but she has also changed the view of many people about those affected by this disease."

Since its inception just two months ago, Vix has received nearly 4 million hits from 300,000+ site visitors, raised over £3,500GB ($6,400US) for her charity and, despite its controversial nature, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Donations to the MSRC are accepted internationally through JustGiving.com, a London-based company established to facilitate on-line fundraising worldwide for more than 450 charities.
